francisco's controversial archbishop who knows the pope well. >> reporter: shortly before pope benedict was archbishop of san francisco salvator met with the pope. >> he was mentally alert and engaged in conversation, but he seemed to be fiphysically hurti. >> reporter: still, he never expected to hear the history making news pope benedict was stepping down. >> i was just as shocked as anyone else. i hadn't heard raw morse rumors speculation. >> reporter: he watched popes live longer and the stresses of the job grow harder. >> there are greater demands placed on the pope now and going forward living for a longer time. it's a different dynamic now.
>> reporter: he says pope benedict's tenure was especially stressful with the church embroiled in the sex abuse crisis, and though the church's critics will likely disagree, he believes pope benedict will be remembered for his courage to address it. >> he was one of the leading forces in trying to address this in a more aggressive yet fair way so that justice would be done for all parties involved. >> reporter: he served under pope benedict and john paul ii hopes the same pope will walk the same theological path. though pope benedict is the first in years to resign. >> he's a scholar and is relying on prayer and study. it'll just be a little unusual. >> reporter: joe rosato jr., nbc bay area news. coming up at 6:30 a live report with reaction from other bay area catholics as well as the potential candidate to

they are enforcing a new law allowing the agency to ban riders who commit certain offenses. they include everything interest defacing properly and urinating in like to fighting and shooting. the ban can last anywhere from 30 days to one year. b.a.r.t. citizen review board will hold a community meeting tonight in oakland to discuss the changes which are expected to go into effect in may. the man blamed for one of the bay area's biggest environmental disasters now wants his license back. john cota was in charge of the cosco busan tanker back in 2007. the blame largely fell on cota and officials began the process of taking his license. going thank you the process cota voluntarily retired in 2008. the coast guard refused to renew. cota believes that violated his right to due process.
>> he's talking a big gain but can he back it up? the governor of tex he tex hoping to lure california businesses to the lone star state. he says texas has knocked california off its perch as the business leader. governor rick perry made those controversial comments to the mercury news. this week perry had meetings with business leaders here in the bay area. san francisco and the silicon valley and down in los angeles hoping low taxes, limited regulations and lenient labor laws will be enough to convince california businesses to pack up and leave town and relocate to texas. perry reportedly took shots at governor jerry brown and said austin is poised to become the next silicon valley. they are using his vision to renew their own criticism of the business climate here. >> we have so many laws being passed in california that the first violation with the small business would be a fixed ticket instead of a fine. that would be a huge step. we should have sunset clauses on
all these regulations every five years for review to make sure that they're legitimate. there's still a need. >> governor brown has called governor perry's visit here, quote, a cheap gimmick. >> a front row seat to the state of the union, the local leader who will be sitting with the first lady. plus -- >> reporter: it's not a new crime but it may have found a new target. i'm jodi hernandez in the east bay. i'll show you how time may be added to your commute. the story straight ahead. a high risk rescue plays out as our nbc chopper was overhead. the story behind the hair-raising rescue just ahead. and good evening. i'm jeff ranieri in the weather center. temperatures dropping quickly this hour. low to mid-50s throughout the tri-valley and 54 in san jose. we could hit 32 degrees for tomorrow morning coming up in 15 minutes.

repair copper wiring along bay area highways. caltrans and its workers can barely keep up. >> we get reports almost every day of another sign or another group of lights that isn't working. >> reporter: and that's causing major traffic headaches adding to the gridlock throughout the bay area as electronic message signs and metering lights go dark. >> i know you have any kind of significa signal lights down or metering lights or even street lights, overhead lights are down. all of that's going to have a negle negative impact on traffic, slow people down. >> reporter: this worker shows us where the thieves cut the copper wire that powers metering lights along highway 238. copper crooks pulled 10,000 feet of wire from 100 boxes. contractors say it's happening all over the region. >> 680, mission, stone creek, 580 livermore, everybody.
>> reporter: that's costing commuters time and money. caltrans says they're spending $2 million a year in the bay area alone. the copper wire repairs. >> that $2 million could be better spent on, say, filling potholes, preparing guardrails, all the other things we have to do as a maintenance district. so this is costing everyone. >> reporter: we are back here live. you can see this sign is dark just like we're told many signs throughout the bay area. caltrans is protecting its wiring including using aluminum when possible and burying the wire deeper into the ground, reporting live in castro valley, i'm jodi hernandez. nbc bay area news. road work near santana road in the south bay could cause some headaches over the next three days. crews will be temporarily closing several on and off ramps and lanes where stevens creek boulevard converges with 280 and

offshore. that's going to bring us the offshore wind to give us this mild trend of weather with mainly 60s. we can't rule out a few 70s throughout the week. the other thing ma may be causing you problems, it's the pollen. moderate levels for tree, june perfect and also for birch. tomorrow we're going to start off with the coldest levels in the indian valley. 30s expected in the morning. sunny and hazy by midday. mid-50s inland and then throughout the afternoon, low 60s for those interior valleys. on that three-day forecast, sunny throughout tuesday, wednesday, and thursday. our chances of rain coming up, you guys. we'll also talk about who ranks as the driest ever since record keeping started for 2013 here across the bay area. some unbelievable numbers you don't want to miss. >> jeff, we'll see you in a few minutes. just ahead, critically important vitamin supplements but are you getting what you paid for? the surprising findings next. also coming up, keeping

"the times" says it stands by the article. now a word from our sponsor. it's not our sponsor but a company willing to pay millions of dollars to force you to watch scantily clad women talk tech. i'm talking more than a maker of commercials. also, as of today, a growing force in silicon valley. >> there are two sides to go daddy.

natalie collins studied in rome, she made a point pope benedict xvi in person. she said this was a thrill but not an integral part of her faith. >> a huge decision but it's a lot more local community based. >> the day-to-day level, i doubt that most catholics will feel a significant difference. >> reporter: father michael mccarthy says some of the elder members of the church are disappointed pope benedict won't serve, he sees the resignation as thoughtful and humble. >> consistent with what he has been saying for a while. if you look at him, you can see that he is frail and he's 85 years old. that's a lot of pressure to have as an 85-year-old man. >> reporter: but some catholics don't like the pope's break with the tradition of serving until death. >> i'm very disappointed because, in my lifetime, every pope has all of the natural death. >> reporter: some say they hope the pope will be young er and
interested in change. mccarthy says he hopes the next will not be drastically different. >> chosen by john paul ii and benedict xvi. >> reporter: still, local catholics say they'll pray for their church and hope for a well thoughtout decision on benedict's replacement. >> the pope doesn't affect me on a regular basis. but he does affect big changes in the church. >> reporter: none of us has ever seen a resignation of a pope before, but it is possible that as we live longer than perhaps we are capable of, we might see more resignations in the future. >> thank you. more details on the early front-runner to be the next pontiff. cardinal peter turkson head of the vatican justice and peace bureau. nigeria's francis arinze. if selected either would become
the first black pope in history. also on the list of possible replacements marc ouellet of canada. position of pontiff once reserved only for italians is open to all cardinals. the disgruntled ex-cop still on the run. southern california is still on edge. today a prosecutor in southern california stepped in and filed criminal charges against kr christopher dorner. nbc bay area's janelle wang? the attempted murder of three officers in an enhanced charge of special circumstances could mean the death penalty for christopher dorner. the former los angeles police officer is also accused of killing the daughter of a police c captain and her fiance, all of it apparently in revenge for his firing from the police force in 2008. authorities are looking into 700 tips after announcing a $1
million reward yesterday for information leading to dorner's arrest. >> we need all of the public's eyes and ears in assisting law enforcement in apprehending this very dangerous individual. >> police admit the trail has gone cold. their last lead was last thursday when they found his truck. a door-to-door search of 600 cabins turned up nothing. thousands showed up at cowboys stadium this afternoon to remember a former navy s.e.a.l. sniper murdered earlier this month. 38-year-old chris kyle and a friend were shot to death at a shooting range in north texas. police arrested 25-year-old iraqi war veteran who was also at the range with the two men. kyle wrote the best-selling book american sniper and was reportedly the most lethal sniper in u.s. military history.

railway officials are blaming the government for not warning them of the mass crowd. jessica? >> thank you, janelle. then candidate barack obama promised to roll back many of the national security programs from the bush administration which he felt stepped on american civil liberties. today a new poll shows voters appear to think president obama is just as bad if not worse than his predecessor when it comes to trading his civil liberties for security. tonight's reality check, sam brock joins us and takes a look at one of president obama's policies warrant that kind of criticism. good evening. there's a perception among some folks that president obama governed far to the left. the truth is when it comes to defending our country, actually far more conservative. i think some of the most controversial elements of president bush's policy, adding some of his own to the mix. from drone strikes he first targeted killing to nsa
wiretapping, both presidents bush and obama have found themselves tiptoeing the line protecting our country and violating civil liberties in the war on terror. which president has gone farther? here are the it typical responses from bay area residents when we posed that question monday. >> i would say george w. bush. i'm not 100% pleased with president obama's record on civil liberties. >> under the name of homeland security. now that was started in bush but now obama was so much better, would he not change? of course not. >> reporter: the type of tepid response displayed for both presidents is reflecting the latest national polling. according to a recent study conducted by the hill, 37% of voters argue president obama has been worse than president bush in balancing civil liberties and national security. with 15% rating him about the same. and the reality is they're right. civil liberties have not become more protected under president
obama. despite banning certain interrogation techniques deemed to be torturous like waterboarding and closing guantanamo prison which, by the way, still hasn't happened, the president has continued many bush-era policies, controversial ones at that. he's extended the patriot act, continued wiretapping which he voted to legalize as a senator, he has created his own controversy as well. the use of drone strikes. >> there has been little transparency in these programs. obama has criticized the bush administration extensively for not disclosing information about controversial programs, and he's done exactly the same thing. >> reporter: during john brennan's cia confirmation hearings the nominee refused to divulge to congress details of the covert programs. but here are some of the facts. drone attacks in pakistan over the last decade compiled by the new america foundation, the
total number of strikes fewer than 20 under president bush. president obama has taken office, they've numbered in the hundreds with little oversight outside of the executive branch. >> if president bush were behind the targeted killing policies, there would be outcries of outrage and yet here we have a politically tricky situation because it's a member of their own party. be abdicating policies that are more in the dark and more aggressive. >> it is also noted public opinion has changed and we don't see such methods of interrogation and wiretapping as issues anymore. no matter how you dissect the question, the fact remains president obama has maintained near complete secrecy over a lethal program while continuing many of the policies of his predecessors. the poll is spot on. i'm sam brock and that's today's reality check. thank you. up next, they're back and ready to defend their title.
back to work in the desert. some of the giants arriving for duty at spring training. we'll take you inside of the clubhouse. and does the dose match the label? research involving a common supplement. and good evening. i'm jeff ranieri in the nbc bay area weather center. a lot of sunshine today. that's going to continue for tuesday. here is a sneak peek. the numbers with plenty of 30s. we'll talk more about decreasing air quality and who ranks the driest ever on record for 2013 in just a few minutes.
the federal trade commission says one in five consumers has an error in their credit report issued by major agencies. the study looked at credit reports issued for 1,000
consumers. 5% of the consumers identified errors in their reports that could lead to them paying for -- more for mortgages, auto loans, and financial products. most economists agree it's important for consumers to check your reports at least once a year. >> in health matters tonight, many vitamin d supplements may not contain what the labels say they do. doctors say it's hard to overdose on the vitamin and their concern is with supplements that provide less. lack for verified pro dekts or go with a well-known bran. a natural way is to increase time in the sun, walk the dog, take a stroll in the park, can increase levels and help you lose weight. >> that is good. >> sunshine very important for the human body. >> it is. >> this monday, take us through the week. >> we're going to see some
changes. people enjoy that sunshine. we have a little bit more coming your way. a live look outside in san francisco. i have that full weather report coming up in a few minutes. [ male announcer ] tender sirloin and a succulent lobster tail... for an incredible $16.99. share the love this valentine's, with sizzler's steak & lobster. share the love this valentine's, did you just turn your ringer off so no one would interrupt oh no, i... just used my geico app to get a tow truck.
it's gonna be 30 minutes. oh, so that means that we won't be stuck up here, for hours, with nothing to do. oh i get it, you wanna pass the time, huh. (holds up phone) fruit ninja!!! emergency roadside assistance. just a click away with the geico mobile app. it felt like spring was peeking around the corner today, didn't it? >> like this.
>> something like that. >> yes. i know, just kind of sneaking up here on us. we should have a lot more rainfall for this time of the year, you guys. that doppler radar is looking too familiar from what we have seen the past two months absolutely dry. and here are some of the latest information coming had in now that we are looking at information from january 1st to the current calendar year, we are on track for the driest ever on record for napa, san francisco, and santa cruz. let me step out of the way to digest these numbers. napa this year, that's .37 of an inch of rainfall. and santa cruz nearly an inch but you should have nearly 9 inches. again, a very huge rain disparity across the bay area and this is now all these cities ranking the driest ever on record and that goes way back to
1849 on those records. now let's get a look with the stagnant air in place. not a whole lot of wind tomorrow. at moderate levels and also for the south bay, this may aggravate your allergies as pollen is also going to be on the increase. temperatures in the north bay with upper 40s. also 54 currently in san jose. take you outside of that live camera network. we would like to give you a window to the south bay and we are mainly clear down in the silicon valley and as we take you up to san francisco we are also undergoing some clear skies. we do have some low level moisture showing up there but we're not expecting a huge fogg event tomorrow. take a look at this unusual pattern. this region of high pressure is so strong. august and september, that storm track is way off to the north. alaska and canada, high pressure
build i building offshore. this will give us a slight wind here that's going to move more out of the north. that will keep the mild weather here for tuesday and also wednesday. but here's the thing. it's not going to be full-on beach weather at the coastline. temperatures will surge up a little bit. but with the slight onshore flow, we'll stay with mainly 50s at the immediate coastline. back for the interior valley, plenty of widespread 60s. the only hitch in the forecast will be we start off in the morning. if you don't get to sleep in, you don't get to get up at 9:00 or 10:00 in the morning, up at 5:00 in the morning, they're going to need the jackets to start. 32 in santa rosa. 33 in livermore. 36 in san jose. but what is remarkable is how much these temperatures are going to surge for tuesday after those mid and upper 30s in the south bay. we're going to go to 64 in san jose. back for the east bay, also a 30 to 33 degree temperature jump by the afternoon with low 60s so, yes, you'll start off with a jacket, maybe a few layers. by the afternoon i think you're going to be doing good there. maybe some long sleeves will work fine for you.
dry through thursday's forecast. as you look ahead to the upcoming weekend, i'd love to put rainfall on here. we need it so bad. it is not in the cards. we will have cloud cover increasing and dry weather stays in the mix all the way through s sunday and also on monday. so the odd thing, again, for the rainfall season, we are nearly 100% of normal because of all the rain we had in november and december but because of how dry we've been in january and february we're now ranking the driest ever on record. >> amazing. >> since the 1800s. >> wow. >> yes. >> what a difference a month makes. it's crazy. thank you, guys. nbc bay area is the proud broadcast home of the world series champs. and this year, this time of year, we head south. it's happy new year, baseball is back. over the next couple of weeks, nbc bay area's laurence scott. we begin with the champs and
some familiar faces. >> reporter: greetings from arizona, inside the giants clubhouse in scottsdale stadium and pitchers and catchers don't officially report until tomorrow. we caught up with a lot of the guys who made their way to the stadium here today. and that's where equipment manager mike murphy and staff were helping the players get unpacked and ready for an eventful spring ahead. >> i think all the guys like to show up early. they always like to get out of arizona and try to acclimate to the weather a little bit. tougher weather. usually in the sunshine it's rainy. we just have a lot of fun together. >> for me i live in the north pole and need to get downer who where it's warm and play some catch a little bit. it's always fun when you come to the clubhouse and you have the groomed fields and the training staff. you have the players. it gives your mentality, hey, we have to get it going here. for me, i kind of have to tell myself, hey, you have to get it
going here. >> reporter: and a good deal of position players like brandon crawford are already on the scene. >> it's nice. we have a lot of the same guys back from last year. so it's like a reunion here coming back and everybody getting together and we're all real excited because, like i said, we have the same guys coming back. we hope to do the same thing. >> reporter: and they will continue unpacking tomorrow as the rest report for the very first workout on wednesday. the giants in scottsdale, i'm laurence scott. back to you in the stewudio. >> i can't believe we're talking baseball already. >> it's amazing. jim kozimor joins us from our sports comcast -- >> you should have your bow tie on. >> maybe tomorrow 0. happy new year. you are exactly right. let's get it rolling. hard to believe but, yes, baseball is officially back. pitchers and catchers, the oakland athletics reported to spring training today and, man, do they have a great place to do it. the backdrop there.
phoenix, arizona, the green and gold. they'll be there for the next month and a half. we have someone there as well. our kate long worth, the defending champions. it appears you're reporting from alaska. it's cold down there. >> reporter: yeah, that's right. the first day of spring but someone forgot to tell arizona that spring training was starting because it was raining when the a's players arrived at the facility here in phoenix today. but they didn't let the weather dampen their spirits. today was only the day to play catch. it's safe to say the a.l. west defending champions are ready to get back out there and pick up where they left off. >> kind of exciting. you're seeing your friends and obviously your co-workers again for the first time. it's a lot of fun seeing those faces again. obviously it's nice to get back out here and something that we love to do and see the faces again. >> it was a little different
than last year. no question about it. we wouldn't allow them to wear jackets or pullovers so we could see a number or a name. not quite the case this year. >> reporter: after making a name for themselves in 2012 the a's players have an added incentive this spring as they take the field ready to defend their a.l. west title. >> i don't think anyone wanted it to end. i could have kept playing baseball like that for the rest of my life. >> i don't really know what happens now. playing so many games and winning games. we swept the rangers and were in the playoffs. it's better that way. a group of kids that didn't know what was happening. it was fun. like i said, hopefully go out. >> show the things we're capable of. that little bit we can take that into this year and, you know, be a full season or just the ten games. >> reporter: and the major difference i noticed today versus last year on report day was the energy in the clubhouse. last year it was violent. these are all new players afraid of saying or doing the wrong
thing but today there's a different swagger that comes from a team that made the playoffs. the music was up and you don't have to guess what song was playing. of course move it like bernie. and so i can confirm, the a's are ready to get it started in 2013. reporting live in chilly a arizona, i'm kate longworth, nbc bay area news. >> we'll have you back again tomorrow. football. the 49ers quarterback chris culliver had a rough week especially following homophobic comments. he began visiting with sick children at the ronald mcdonald house. >> like i said, more to continue. projects like this or anything, i've been dealing with this project for two months now. it's like i'm a little kid at the candy store. anxious to see him. hearing from all the battles and things he went through and to
see him out here, he had a big smile on his face and just the love, today was the first day coming outside. >> now on to hoops, the warriors make headlines in the fashion world today. they unveiled uniforms with short sleeves attached to them. 26% lighter than the traditional heavy jerseys and made of 60% recycled materials. the warriors will wear those uniforms in a game february 22nd, that's a home game against the san antonio spurs. the sharks finishing up in columbus, ohio. they lose five straight games. pitchers and catchers are here, guys. that's all that matters. maybe a bow tie just for you. >> i kind of like seeing the guns. >> yes, you do.
a local leader is calling for more accountability and officials are already making changes as the investigative unit exposed how restaurant inspection system is weak. we found the county doesn't have a scoring system for restaurants and doesn't post any inspection reports leaving customers in the dark. the county has taken a step backwards when it comes to getting information about restaurants' health inspections to consumers. >> having all that information either filed away in a filing cabinet somewhere or displayed in a way online that's not user friendly means we lose all the benefits we otherwise might have. >> tonight at 11:00 hear the plans moving forward and what changes the county made after our investigation exposed that
lack of accountability. >> very interesting story. we're going to leave you with a big thank you. hopefully you have a great night. we'll see you soon -- tonight at 11:00.
